Guest Designer on Sketchy Boards Blog

Hey everyone.... I barely have time to play along with my own challenge blogs but I was recently asked to be Guest Designer for August on Sketchy Boards Challenge Blog by Heidi and how could I say no!! 
So she zapped me the sketch and color inspiration... my first thought when I saw it was... are you kidding me??? Obviously she doesn't 'know' me... lol Purple and white?? Well it could have been worse.. it could have been Pink!! lol So out of my comfort zone I started off with this challenge.. ;0) 

So here is the sketch and the color inspiration I was given:

Ok.. so then I start thinking of what pics I want to play with for this color inspiration.... thinking.. I'm thinking... lol  So I thought of one of the newest members of our family and one that I see alot of pics of on facebook.... so I go and swipe pics that my cousin Jammie took of her little niece Afton. Perfect... now I am inspired to get this going!! I zap the pics off to Walgreens and as soon as my daycare kids are gone I am in the car to pick them up and then my scrapbooking process begins.. ;0) Because, YES sometimes it is a process!! So this is what I came up with for this sketch challenge:

I choose to change the pics from circles on the sketch to 4x4's and one 4x3.. staggering a bit. The background I chose to take my white cardstock and ink it with Tim Holtz distress ink Dusty Concord and splashed with some Glimmer Mist (which I have tons of still!!). I dug thru my scraps and found the papers I wanted to use and pulled out some flowers and finished it off with some Lilac Liquid Pearls in my stash.... I'm happy with the way it turned out... 

I hope you enjoyed checking this out and hopefully you have the time to play along with Heidi's challenge blog Sketchy Boards Challenge Blog

  3. This is a grungy look for a baby and I just love it. It works so well.. softness of a baby and grungy feel... opposites attract. <3
